Backplane Protocol is a "message bus" for social applications, enabling applications developed by disparate vendors to communicate with each other in real-time. Integrate multiple apps such as real-time commenting, social login and game mechanics into your site in order to provide web visitors with a modern, social user experience.
Backplane Protocol builds on proven and popular open standards work by leveraging technologies such as OpenID, OAuth, and Portable Contacts. As a proposed open standard, it reduces the need for companies and independent developers to learn and develop against other vendors' proprietary APIs.
